Gretsch 6119-1962HT Tennessean

This Gretsch 6119-1962HT Tennessean instrument was donated by the Gretsch foundation from their extensive collection of Gretsch guitars & drums. it has been part of the collection for some 12 years now and during that time it was exhibited at the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in Macon, Georgia, as well, as at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta Airport in a Georgia music hall of fame exhibit there. It has been photographed extensively and admired by musicians and the public alike.

Features include: Dual hilo-tron pickups, zero fret, polished aluminum Bigsby vibrato for great accents, 16" maple hollow body, locking strap knobs, rosewood fingerboard, and chrome plated hardware. 
Mellow pickups...great for many styles. Especially jazz, blues, country, etc.
Simulated f-holes to cut back on feedback 3 way tone switch provides interesting sound options.
Thinner body than most Gretsch models makes it more comfortable to most players.
Bar bridge adds extra tonal qualities.

It is considered 'new old stock' as it has never been a player owned instrument.  

The design was pioneered by Gretsch along with Chet Atkins in the late 1950's. This particular guitar was built in the Chet Atkins tradition before the resumption of extensive Chet Atkins guitar production in 2007 and as such, does not bear his signature on the pick guard.

A 2007 Chet Atkins Gretsch Catalog and a 2010 Country Music Hall of Fame Exhibition Catalog and a hard shell carrying case are included.
